Join the fastest growing minority there is and become an atheist. 
Fed up of religion telling you it has all the answers when it doesn’t? Tired of hearing about divine mysteries when there aren’t any?  Irritated by the pious evangelistas telling you you’re going to hell when you’re obviously not? Exhausted by creationists…for simply being creationists? Want to know more about the so-called atheist conspiracy? Then this book is for you.
For millennia priests and holy men have told countless conflicting tales about humanity’s genesis and fate. Is it all nonsense? You bet it is. For round about the same amount of time they have also been saying that anyone devoid of faith is evil, immoral and responsible for all of society’s ills. How wrong they are.
This book contains all you need to know about what to pack for your journey on the enlightening road to atheism including a brief history of free thought - it goes back further than you think - all the way to an introductory who’s who in purgatory for knowing there isn’t a god.
Learn that there are five types of atheism. Find out the difference between an atheist and an agnostic – a term invented by T.H.Huxley, famous for his defence of Darwin and how a deist differs from a theist. Discover the oxymoronic fact that Christians were originally called atheists. Read who Lucretius was and what his fellow materialists were about. And revel in the fact that atheists have nothing to defend but are happy that way…

User Review  - Shawn Ybarra - Goodreads

I found the historical perspective fascinating. If he doesn't outright hate people of whatever faith I didn't get that from his writing. I don't know that he can tolerate living in a world with people ... Read full review
